Find Your Face Shape

Step 1 >> Step 2 >> Step 3 >> Step 4 >> Get Results

You have an oblong face shape!

The main characteristic of an oblong face shape is that the face is longer than it is wide with a rounded jaw-line. You may also have a rounded hairline.

Hairstyle dos: You’ll want to balance the look of a long and slender face. Wearing a hairstyle that gives the visual of a fuller face is a good choice. You can try styles with short to medium lengths, eyebrow-skimming bangs or cheekbone-level layers, which shorten the length of the face while adding width to the cheekbones.

Hairstyle don’ts: Avoid any style that adds height to the top of your head, which will make the face look even longer. And be scrupulous with a center part, which usually drags down your face.

don't get freaked out, but have you tried perming it? i don't mean the 80s tight curls, but some gentle waves would definitely make your hair look more voluminous.
Otherwise you can never go wrong with some layers. I would cut it a bit shorter though, 2-3 inches at least.

Hey Carissa if you see this I use a 3/4 curling iron and I don't use the clamp I wrap my hair around the barrel every other direction.    It's very simple and a lot faster than taking the time to curl it.

lots of layers, with side swept bangs. Add some more blonde in your hair too. Your eyes are gorgeous!

I am a new mom and I am not sure what to do with my hair. I want something new! And it does not have to be easy. I have a natural curl but do straighten it often.    Any suggestion on cut or color??

Anything that shows off your beautiful eyes.    I like the hairstyle you have in this picture.    A bob with layered cuts angling toward your face seems like it would look great.    Lighter on top or highlighted on top and sides with darker underneath for depth and fullness seems like it would be great.

If I were you I would do a shoulder legnth cut with long layers and long side swept bangs.    I would add some highlights by your face because I think it'd play well with your blue eyes.

Yes a break from chemicals is what I would suggest.

I think layers and an off center part could work as well as an uneven part would emphasize your pretty eyes.    Use some good root boost product to build volume but also use some deep conditioning once a week and maybe some spray on leave in conditioner when you have a day off.
